Forget English! Orientalisms and World Literatures | SOAS London, Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies (CCLPS), Brunei Gallery Room: B111

Datum: 8. Februar 2017, 17:15-19:00 Uhr

Am Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies (CCLPS) der Londoner SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) stellt der Komparatist Aamir R. Mufti heute Abend sein neues Buch Forget English: Orientalisms and World Literatures vor:

Discussion with Professor Aamir R. Mufti (UCLA) of his book Forget English: Orientalisms and World Literatures (Harvard, 2016). Discussants: Professor Galin Tihanov (QMUL), Professor Florian Mussgnug (UCL), Dr Karima Laachir (SOAS) and Professor Francesca Orsini (SOAS).
Aamir Mufti’s recent book Forget English: Orientalisms and World Literatures (Harvard, 2016) is a powerful and authoritative intervention in the discussion of world literature and the hegemony of English. Pointing to the forgotten genealogy of world literature in the „Oriental Renaissance“ (Schwab) in late-18th and 19th century Europe, the book traces English’s ascendance to world hegemony and the Orientalist refashioning and „assimilation“ of non-European textual world into European categories of literature.
